Storyline

The BAU travel to Lafayette Parish, Louisiana to work on the case of Sammy Sparks, a ten year old autistic boy who is seen splattered with blood. His parents, Alison and Charlie Sparks, are missing. At the Sparks home, the BAU find evidence that Charlie was shot and has a serious wound. The Sparks recently were issued a large loan to be able to keep their music store, their long time family business, open. As Lafayette Parish is in an area hit hard by the oil spill, anyone who gets a loan is considered to have won the lottery. The BAU therefore believe the Sparks were targeted for the money, and that the unsub knew the family and knew that Sammy would not be able to identify him. They try to decipher Sammy's drawings and his music and piece it to the strict routine by which all the Sparks lived to find the unsub. Meanwhile, two of Prentiss' Interpol colleagues, Tsia Mosely and Clyde Easter, try to track Ian Doyle's movements, while Prentiss considers asking her BAU colleagues for help... Written by Huggo

Goofs

When Sammy is drawing in the police station, in one shot, the drawing is of squares and triangles surrounding a detailed representation of the tread pattern on the bottom of Agent Rossi's boot in the center of the page, but in the next shot, the page is filled with just squares and triangles, with no boot tread.

seconding thoughts expressed
26 February 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I thought the show was passable. It was an interesting storyline that used current events to show how circumstances can make even the most normal human a criminal. Good concept...however....

I can't stomach much of it any more since they've made the budget cuts. The biggest impact I've liked is giving Reid more of a voice it seems. The worst is yet to come when/if Prentiss is removed too.

I second thoughts expressed on removing JJ and bringing in a new character who simply isn't that bright, regardless of her history that's supposed to give her some sort of unique perspective. What galls me the most is giving Garcia more air-time by having her pick up the slack left by JJ's absence. I dislike her character intensely, but can bear her as the computer geek. (but her banter with Morgan makes me gag) Now? I'm about ready to stop taping this show since they've chosen to put her so front and center this way.
